The Recombinant Mycoplasma Pneumoniae C-terminal region (P1C) of the P1 protein was expressed in E. coli having an Mw of 65kDa. The protein is fused to a GST-Tag. This peptide can be used as an antigen in the diagnosis of M. pneumoniae infection.
Mycoplasma pneumonia is part of the atypical pneumonia subtype which is caused by the bacteria M. pneumoniae. Mycoplasma pneumonia affects individuals younger than 40. It makes up 15 - 50% of all pneumonia cases in adults and especially in school-aged children. People at great risk for mycoplasma pneumonia comprise of those living or working in busy areas such as schools and homeless shelters, althoµgh many people who contract mycoplasma pneumonia have no identifiable risk factor. P1, P30, and P116 of mycoplasma pneumonia membrane proteins have been recognized as adhensive factors, P1 is considered as a main adhension protein of the organism colonization.
